SCORR Newsletter – August 2016

SCORR Newsletter 8/12/2016 
by Tim Nixon- President SCORR

The new SCORR video is here!

The goal of this video is to explain why motorized trails have closed and how to keep them open. Then I wanted to do it in under 6 minutes. Done.

I also want to motivate motorized users to volunteer to do something that rarely ever happens: Build New Motorized Trail.


I had the opportunity to review the trail we will build tomorrow and made a few changes. (Picture above). Seems that the mountain bike folks want a technical trail that’s at about 4 miles an hour. Moto requires 12 to 20 miles per hour. We compromised at about 8 miles an hour through technical moss covered rock.

Tomorrow is our 3rd of 4 trail building days this year. The first one had about 30 SCORR members out of 456. The last one had 12 SCORR members. This one ???

Let’s rock this. We have the money. We have the technology. Now we need you, at the landfill in Keystone at 8:30 am tomorrow, ready to pound Red Bull with the Wings Team Ladies and build trail. I’ll also bring some snacks and free t-shirts.

P.S. Please register at for “Tenderfoot Trail Constuction” so we know how much beer to bring.
